More Protein Ice Cream - Dreamsicle!! Plus Today's Food...

It's Graduation Day!! Shiloh & Ariel graduate high school this evening. Wow, time flies! I've got a short work-day today, and then I'm off to get cardio done, then all the mad-errands for tonight and tomorrow. Lots to do!! :-)

Last night after work, I hit the gym for my cardio - did 40 minutes, plus 5 min cool-down, on the elliptical - steady state. Headed home for dinner Salmon lettuce wraps (if I have my way, that's the last of the salmon!) with steamed broccoli & cauliflower. At bedtime, I was ready for my shake, but decided to do the "ice-cream" instead... OMG! I hit a winner! Remember dreamsicles? Those vanilla ice cream popsicles surrounded by the orange flavored ice? I nailed it! So incredibly yummy! Even Bill was shocked at how good it was (his lack of faith disturbs me, lol).

Dreamsicle Protein Ice Cream
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tsp vanilla extract (pure)
1/4 tsp orange extract
1 cup almond milk (vanilla, unsweetened).
Blend together, then pour into a sandwich size ziploc & seal.  In a gallon size ziploc, add ice and half cup of salt. Place small baggie in the big baggie, seal and shake about 5 minutes.

This morning, I had yoga at 6:30 am. It was a great class (as usual) and really helped... I'm super sore from yesterday's workout, lol , my chest feels like it's going to explode. After work, like I mentioned, it's cardio time and then errands. We've got family in town from Northern California... and my siblings arrive tomorrow for the party. Can't wait to see them! :-)

Here's my food for today... the cooler only has breakfast through lunch in it, as I'll be heading out then, and eating the rest of my food at home.
